How do you spend your free time?
I enjoy doing crafts and being creative, as well as, just hanging out with friends and family. I also enjoy being plugged in and volunteering with/in the community.

What is your mantra?
I always try to treat others as I would want to be treated and leave others, so they feel better about themselves.

When did you know you wanted to be in the beauty industry?
I always had an interest in fashion and beauty, but really developed an interest in hair around 17 and began pursuing it from there.

What celebrity always has great hair?
Jennifer Lopez.

What is your personal style?
I have a pretty classic style but like to throw in a twist or a little bit of edge here and there.

How do you approach a haircut?
I like to take a moment to learn a little bit about a person’s day to day life, so they have a style that works for them and gives them versatility.

What advice do you have for someone who wants to color their hair for the first time?
Take into account your personal style and personality. If you are bold and enjoy attention, you will probably enjoy something more punch. If you are conservative and reserved, start with something a little more subtle.
